The Residence Mauritius, an island paradise

A kilometre-long beach of white sand bordered by lush tropical gardens, an atmosphere of refinement and nostalgia whose inspiration has its roots back in the nineteenth century plantations, and butler service worthy of the royal palaces of yesteryear are just some of the reasons the readers of the exclusive Conde Nast travel magazine have chosen The Residence Mauritius as the best leisure hotel on the island.

Besides the exceptional natural environment, the luxury hotel has 135 spacious bedrooms - the smallest measuring 54 square metres - and 28 suites whose architecture and decoration echo the style of nineteenth century colonial houses. The service is impeccable, including private butler service for every room. As for gastronomy, the Residence Mauritius offers three excellent restaurants, The Dining Room, The Verandah and The Plantation, where you can sample the best international cuisine as well as the island's traditional Creole recipes.

The Residence Mauritius, ranked 13th in the table of best hotels in the Middle East, Africa and Indian Ocean, complete its world of elegance with a superb 600 square metre spa, The Sanctuary. Far more than just a fitness centre, it's a veritable temple to relaxation, offering a wide range of massages and treatments in a setting inspired by en philosophy.
